Oakville continues to grow at a rapid rate as the city’s strategic location within the Golden Horseshoe and quality of life attracts an increasing number of new residents, a trend that only contributes to an increasing demand for new deluxe residences. Growing in population by 6.2 percent since 2011, Oakville is expected to reach 255,000 residents by 2031.
Already outpacing Toronto for growth, new residents are making the switch to Oakville not just for its easy access to transportation options and competitive housing market. Already a popular area for life science companies, this rising city has also become the corporate head office for Tim Hortons as well as the Canadian head offices for Siemens and the Ford Motor Company.
Just as impressive is this city’s Sheridan College, a popular post-secondary educational facility. Its nearby Trafalgar Road campus hosts the school’s Faculty of Animation as well as its Arts and Design department. As Canada’s largest art school, this campus is attended by nearly 10,000 students.
So whether as a new family just starting out or as someone looking to make an easy commute to the local campus, these single family homes are the ideal real estate investment.
